Halloween Horror Nights Kicks Off 2017 Season


Lena Thaw

It’s that time of the year again. A time when crowds of people pile into Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights in Hollywood for a night of terrifying fun.
Main attractions at the special event include haunted houses, mazes, and scare zones. This year’s Halloween event will include all of the mazes from fan favorite movies and TV shows such as The Shining, Insidious, Saw, American Horror Story, and Titans of Terror.
Many horror fans await the entire year for this special event and the countdown is finally over. Gates open to guests at 5pm, and dates continue to run between September 15 through November 4. Tickets this year range from $65 to $299, depending on the day.
The annual event originated at Universal Studios Orlando in 1991, but evolved greatly with its grand open at Universal Studios Hollywood in 1992. As the Hollywood movies continue to become more gory, so do the attractions within the park.
For horror fans, or even just a group of friends looking for a good scare, Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights definitely will not disappoint.
